Most of them are now gone so now it is filled with crap in EVERY Styx thread. So, it makes attempting any decent conversation a worthless effort. So, yes, I think I have changed how I post here...I know every single thread about Styx is a wasted effort and is always going to be shit on by you and Toph, with others joining in. So, really, there is no point in looking at this as anything other then an anti-Styx forum for anti-Styx fans.
This is so true.
I'm late to the party, in joining this forum, but not late as far as being a Styx fan is concerned (have been since '77). I discovered this forum over a year ago and was really happy to find it--until I began reading all the posts. Occasionally, there are some really good reads here, and very intelligent posts, but for the most part, it is just constant, never-ending mudslinging at not only the band, but other posters, as well. And, it's not only here, but anyplace Styx is written about; the negative nay-sayers always take over with their determination to have their final say in how the band sucks, how they are just a cover band w/o DDY, etc., etc., ad nauseum. Yes, everyone is entitled to his or her own opinion on things, but not to the point where folks can't even say anything good about the band without fear of being trampled on. It's a shame, and a disgrace.
